Literally a few minutes after my post on Saturday, I managed to break the LCD on my computer screen.  🙁 First, a little background.  DH is a computer scientist.  I have not *personally* owned a computer (one that I’ve bought and paid for) since my short-lived stint with TFA (Teach for America) nearly 3 years … Continue reading »

Semi-Lazy Weekend

Now that I’m finishing up with my summer classes, I have unexpected amounts of time on my hands…and actually get to do something other than homework all weekend!  Well, I SHOULD be studying, but I know I’ll do plenty of it this week coming up.

Wanted: A Good Night’s Sleep

Shoot dang, the past couple of days have been tiring. We went on Saturday evening to pick out our new baby! This is Noelle.  🙂 We picked her up from a cat rescue…she was a part of an abandoned litter.  She is the cutest, tiniest, littlest bugger.  She’s always happy to see people and purrs … Continue reading »

One of Wash U’s MAT (Master of Arts in Teaching) students did it this year, … Continue reading »

Healthy Food FAIL

You have to know going in to a holiday weekend that whatever ideas of healthy eating you have are going to fly right out the window…but, being the optimistic idiot I am, I figured I could maintain my semi-healthy lifestyle. Yeah, didn’t happen. We had a ton of fun on the boat. We also had … Continue reading »

Life on a Boat

We’re going boating today, and I’m just so excited that I have to share! 🙂 When I lived in IL the past two summers, I would go boating at least once a month (usually more) with my dad and Sharon. Needless to say, this summer I have hard-core missed getting to go! But today I … Continue reading »

Sprucing it Up!

I decided to take to re-vamp the blog a wee bit…with a little help from one of my blogging/TN buddies (thanks Yasi!!!). Seems like I’m trying to change a lot of little things in my life right now. DH and I are going to take a pseudo-spur of the moment trip up to IL for … Continue reading »
